Beauty News – NYX in NZ, new Velourlips shades and beauty advent calendars


STOP PRESS! NYX is coming to NZ, there’s five new Australis Velourlips shades on their way and there are some stunning beauty advent calendars coming out for this Christmas. This kind of beauty news is my favourite type of news!

So it’s official, NYX is opening a flagship store in New Zealand this November. Rumours say it will be in Auckland, but nothing else has been confirmed yet. I discovered the news by finding the official NYX New Zealand Instagram account and was like “uhmm WHAT?!?” – not only is it a Instagram feed full of pretty product shots and shared fan snaps but it’s the account to follow to find out more details about the store. A flagship store is usually created to showcase a brand or product and draw attention to it – there is already so much love here for NYX that I know this store is going to be a huge hit!

This October five new Australis Velourlips shades will hit the shelves, these shades are beautiful and bold. The new range includes a pretty baby pink, a purple based pink which I am already in love from afar with, a strong red, a deep dark purple and a jet black. Who’s going to be brave enough to try the black?!

I became an avid follower of YouTubers last Christmas who were vlogging opening their beauty Christmas advent calendars, in particular I loved the Benefit Cosmetics advent calendar and was so tempted to buy one, but got in too late! Some brands are beginning to share information about this years calendars and they are looking pretty amazing. Again the Benefit one looks super cool and I love the packaging of the Charlotte Tilbury ‘The Book of Makeup Magic’ – the question is whether these are going to be easy to get in NZ!

  • I feel skeptical about the NYX NZ store – there aren’t even any stores in the US yet, and we don’t even have counters/stands here yet, I’d think they would start with that? But I’ll be excited if it is!

    • I think it’s definitely possible! It’s a flagship store, which are usually made to promote the brand rather than make a profit, so if they are wanting to crack into the NZ/Oz market more it would be a really good start. There are a few NYX stores in the US now too, they have just opened.

      • I mean it’s possible, but I’d be surprised based on how launches usually go, NZ is almost always last.

        • You’re so right. I’m just crossing my fingers that for once we aren’t ‘lucky’ last

  • Wow…NYX ia a great drugstore brand..I am excited for them πŸ™‚

    • Me too! It is such a great brand and I just wish it was more accessible!

  • Sophie β™₯

    Oh wow-Seems interesting about NYX coming here. I know they’re sold in Target in Aus but otherwise it’s hard to come by.

    • Yeah, whenever I’m over there I try and stock up. I’m hoping they are trying to really promote the brand since opening up their first NYX stores in America. I’d love for it to be more accessible!

  • OMG I Love how the black looks! Being on a limited beauty budget though I’d probably just play it safe and go with the purple instead. Very excited for NYX! <3

    • That purple ‘Bae-Jing’ is the prettiest colour, isn’t it? I’m doing a full review of it in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out! I love the look of the black too, but I’m just not brave enough! Maybe for Halloween though…
